    OL2000 and IE6 - aarrrgghhh! (outlook 2000)

    Hi there
    I recently got sucked in by microsoft (yet again) and installed IE6 - whilst still running office 2000 on win98. they were crapping on about "experiencing the XP experience" or some nonsense, and ok, i fell for it...

    well... both IE and Outlook started playing up in small but irritating ways, so i ditched IE6 using it's uninstall feature.

    Now, some of the email that i recieve (and view in OL2000) that is in html format is not displaying properly. Mostly i'm missing the images, but sometimes the whole text is missing as well.

    Has anyone else "experienced" this?
    cheers

    I too am experiencing the same problem. I downloaded a pop mail monitor to troubleshoot the problem. I found that the mail was intact at the server, but somewhere between the server and Outlook 2K, the message was being truncated. I tried using Outlook Express the following day and received the whole message.
    Microsoft says that the problem is with having Outlook 2K configured in a workgroup or corporate environment. I tried to reinstall Outlook 2K as Internet only and came up with an error message.
    That has been my experience with this issue. I have posted to numerous forums, (not just WOPR) and no one has a solution other than to use Outlook Express.

    it's a known issue with ie 6 beta, but AFAIK, is fixed now. if it was a beta build from several months ago, there's a fix in the ms kb.

    Thank you for your response MJ. I only downloaded ie6 two weeks ago, so i don't think that's still the beta ver.
    I uninstalled, and then re-installed again, doing the whole download from MS, not just from the previous files from the first install.
    I'm getting the same problem, except that i now seem to be getting slightly more of the message before it gets truncated.
    I also installed the latest netscape at the about the same time. I don't seem to be having any problems relating to netscape, but could it possibly be affecting the interaction of IE6 and outlook?
    any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks
